April 15th, 2005: Alaska: Shoppers at job fair find work on offer:"It's a buyer's market" for potential employees, said William Perket, human resources director for the consortium, which serves Natives in 18 Southeast communities. "There's a critical shortage of nurses nationwide." Alaska training and education programs are ramping up to fill the need, but the years it takes to train for professional positions such as registered nurses means plenty of competition among employers today."
